Jay Electronica

New Orleans rapper Jay Elec sparked a firestorm with the following line on his 2009 underground smash "Exhibit C": "When New York n---as were calling Southern rappers lame, but then jacking our slang," he rapped. Jay also said in several interviews that he had a "chip on his shoulder" because of New Yorkers dissing Southern rap, calling out RZA in particular. The comments eventually led to a brief war of words with Kay Slay. "Why you keep bringing up old foolishness and keep throwing New York up?" the Hot 97 DJ said. "I'm taking offense."
